Steel Museum Features Hubbard Furnace Exhibit

Two iron producing blast furnaces that once operated in Hubbard have been brought back to life in pictures.

An exhibit called “Iron Valley: A Century of Change at Hubbard Furnace” opened Thursday at the Youngstown Steel Museum.

The 32 photos were collected by Hubbard High graduate and YSU student Clayton Ruminski.

“When I was younger, I used to go back and explore the ruins,” said Hubbard furnace researcher Clayton Ruminski. “Nothing’s been built on it. It was torn down in 1967, and I decided to actually explore what was back there at one point, and I found out it was there for 100 years.”

Ruminski has collected pictures from many historical society collections.

The exhibit runs through early summer.
